Job No. 1 in any gift-giving endeavor is to avoid, at all costs, fit issues. There's nothing quite so merriness-crushing as receiving a pair of gorgeous pants you can't squeeze into.
A handbag is one-size-fits-all, and a designer one is likely to please the typical fashionista. They don't come cheap, but if you're looking to spend some dough (well into the hundreds, to start), consider these:
- Balenciaga Giant City
- Fendi Baguette
- Hermes Birkin
- Prada Vitello
When in doubt, ask a well-dressed salesperson to recommend something.
